      New research by Johnson Controls, the global leader in delivering solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, shows energy efficiency interest rose 116 percent globally since 2010, with those who set goals making the greatest strides in reducing energy use. Momentum is also growing for green-building certification and green-tenant space leasing although many cite a lack of funding and uncertainty over government reform as obstacles to investment.

        In this second episode of WORLDbytes’ TV Dinners, while guests tuck into cheese and cake for dessert, the conversation progresses to drinking and smoking. Interwoven with infamous campaign adverts designed to change our behaviour, diners consider whether the amount we drink and whether we smoke should really be up to us. Special guest Rob Lyons points out, the first thing you get from doctors are questions about your weight, smoking and alcohol consumption which may have absolutely nothing to do with what you have visited them for. Should we have the freedom to make unhealthy choices? If alcohol is a great social lubricant, is binge drinking okay? Is smoking a step too far for our health and should smokers be demonised? All the arguments are chewed over in this compelling short.

          Even before the Leveson inquiry the British press had become tame, objectivity ridiculed and a culture of conformism had set in. Joining volunteers on the sofa, Mick Hume author of There is No Such Thing As a Free Press… and we need one more than ever sets the scene. Investigative journalism is facing an ice age, he explains and the ‘buts’ to ‘I believe in press freedom’ are getting louder. Discussants raise their concerns, was the response to phone hacking over the top? Why can’t we say what we think anymore? What about privacy? Do the public know or care? Can we trust the press anyway? Hume’s answers are salutary and his recommendations to create our own media to challenge ideas rather than support regulation or whinge about Murdoch are more than worth taking on board.

            "A presidente Dilma insiste em não entender a mensagem das ruas de todo o Brasil e acha que vamos parar de nos manifestar por promessas vazias. [...] Queremos mais presidente. Queremos saber sua opinião em outras questões. Até quando você vai esconder sua posição em assuntos como a PEC 37, que acaba com o poder de investigação do Ministério Público? Qual a sua opinião sobre a Cura Gay e o Estatuto do Nascituro? E, principalmente, a senhora não vai se posicionar sobre a manutenção dos senhores Marco Feliciano e Renan Calheiros? Não tente nos enrolar. Porque vamos continuar a reivindicar nossos direitos."

            • Bipartisan Energy Efficiency Efforts Discussed At 24th Annual Energy Efficiency Forum

              Video Source/ Johnson Controls: (http://3blmedia.com/CSR-Profiles/Johnson-Controls) Washington, June 14, 2013 /3BL Media/Corporate Social Responsibility – Public and private sector leaders exchanged ideas yesterday to address the importance of energy efficiency in a changing economy at the 24th annual Energy Efficiency Forum, co-hosted by Johnson Controls and the United States Energy Association, held in Washington, D.C. Energy experts, legislators and business leaders outlined the importance of keeping energy efficiency at the forefront of national research and policy making to make communities and the world more secure, resilient and sustainable. Representatives discuss new bipartisan energy efficiency efforts U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) and U.S. Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), who sit on the Energy and Commerce Committee, discussed forthcoming bipartisan energy efficiency efforts at the forum. The new bipartisan efforts will focus on encouraging more energy efficiency in government and businesses to save money, create local jobs and sustain energy resources. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chair delivers afternoon keynote Keynote speaker Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) addressed the more than 300 forum attendees. “Energy efficiency is a good investment – it saves households and business owners money, creates jobs and moves our country toward a more competitive, low-carbon economy,” Wyden said. “But passing an energy efficiency bill through Congress will take more than common sense and bipartisan support. It’s going to take the businesses, efficiency advocates, consumers and government officials who are backing this issue to send a message that now is the time to bring an efficiency bill to a vote.” Pulitzer Prize winning author focuses on energy efficiency Daniel Yergin provided insight on his recent book, The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World. Yergin is one of America’s most influential energy experts, vice chairman of IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates and a Pulitzer Prize winning author. “Energy efficiency is one of our nation’s greatest energy resources. It is also embedded throughout our economy. Capturing it requires technology, mindset, commitment, and plain old street smarts. But the payback can be huge,” said Yergin. “The reason I focused on energy efficiency at the conclusion of The Quest is because of its strategic importance to our country’s energy future.” New energy efficiency research released by Johnson Controls President Dave Myers, president, Johnson Controls, Building Efficiency, shared highlights of the seventh annual Energy Efficiency Indicator Survey, which gauges the perceptions of more than 3,000 building owners and operators around the world on issues related to energy management practices, energy efficiency and renewable energy investment plans, clean technology integration and project financing approaches. This year’s survey indicated public goals and private financing continue to push global momentum for energy efficiency. In fact, energy efficiency interest increased 116 percent globally since 2010, with those who set goals making the greatest strides in reducing energy use. “We need public officials and private investors to work together to reduce the market’s uncertainty and capture momentum toward a more energy efficient global economy,” said Myers. The Energy Efficiency Indicator survey is led by Johnson Controls’ Institute for Building Efficiency in partnership with the International Facility Management Association and the Urban Land Institute.

                The Queen said an immigration bill would aim to "ensure that this country attracts people who will contribute, and deter those who will not". Unlike migrants, obviously the Queen contributes a lot and is not just a parasite. If passed, the bill will ensure landlords have to check their tenants' immigration status. Has the Queen checked in her bed for foreigners? Have you checked who is in yours? This 30 second short suggests a much simpler solution.
